    I bought a Fagor Duo 8-qt pressure cooker about 3-4 years ago, and I've never been entirely happy with it. Now the valve has started leaking, and the gasket still smells slightly of rubber.

    I went to Amazon, and found that to replace the gasket, valve, and handle will cost about $45.

    If I get a new Presto 8-qt cooker instead, it'll cost $53.

    Has anyone got any experience with these that might help me decide which is the better bet?
